I enjoy being a guest presenter at Australian Youth Literature Festivals, at SCBWI Conferences and in-school Writer-Residency programs, and workshops.
Recently, my work-in-progress, SWEET ADVERSITY, a Mid-grade historical adventure set in the Great Depression in Australia was awarded a SCBWI ARA – Work of Outstanding Promise grant. It’s the first time an Australian has won this award.
I’ve also been a recipient of two ASA (Australian Society of Authors) Mentorships and two May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust Fellowships. My roles as SCBWI ARA, and as a director on the Board of the ASA allow me to be a passionate advocate for writers, children’s books and literacy.
